Pick of the Day: Radio

ANYONE WHO'S interested in how the melting-pot aspirations that underlie the European Union work in practical terms should harken unto Group Seven (11am R4). This documentary follows the collaborative efforts of a group of international students at Insead - Europe's answer to Harvard Business School - and finds that language barriers pose no obstacle to insults.

Performance on 3 (7.30pm R3) features the sort of "Eighties music" that didn't make it into the NME, including "Earth Dances" by Harrison Birtwistle (right).

Night Waves (10.45pm R3) picks at the scab caused by recent comments from Michael Nauman, the German Minister of Culture, about Britain's obsession with the war.
